Liar. Lucifer. Lock her up. GOP denounces Clinton

Ben Carson took the stage of the Republican National Convention Tuesday night and came out swinging against Hillary Clinton and her practice of "deception". Nevertheless, Donald Trump now has the crown - and a final chance to summon unity from the party's restive ranks in the ritual's closing days.

The roll call of the states Tuesday night delivered Trump the nomination, which he welcomed from afar in a videotaped message saying "This is a movement, but we have to go all the way".

Christie told reporters Sunday night he didn't lobby to become Trump's pick for vice president, but was honored to be considered and had "no discontent" over the businessman's choice.

These men are career politicians who are anxious that a Trump loss could wipe out their majorities, or even that he might win while doing nothing to help the down-ticket Republicans, like Nixon in 1972. GOP leaders say that while the United States has always been an exceptional nation, eight years of bad policies and poor leadership under President Barack Obama have weakened the nation overseas and limited opportunities at home.

Trump, the in-your-face outsider, won at the cost of alienating many traditional Republicans both on the right and in the center, and the divide has spilled over into the convention, though without overwhelming it.

The divide has spilled over into the convention, which has been dominated by a thwarted attempt to block Trump's nomination and as well as Mrs. Trump's speech. He was one of the few speakers to energize the crowd, delivering a full-throated takedown of Clinton.

Christie was referring to Trump's starring role in the long-running television show "The Apprentice", where his catch-phrase was "You're fired!" They not only did that, but interrupted him with shouts of "Lock her up".

Christie also touched on Clinton's email scandal.

Two of Trump's children testified to his character. "In writing her lovely speech, Melania's team of writers took notes on her life's inspirations, and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking", Trump spokesman Jason Miller said.

"When you pull back the curtain, it was just Donald Trump with nothing to offer to the American people", Clinton said during a speech in Las Vegas. His home state of NY put Trump over the top in the delegate count, with son Donald Jr. delivering that state's results.

Christie added that the Trump team wants to let businesspeople serve in government part time without having to give up their jobs in the private sector. He said that a Hillary Clinton presidency would be a disaster, and that he knows from personal experience how awful the Clintons are.

It's pretty disturbing to hear a large crowd at a major party convention repeatedly call for the jailing of the leader of the other major party. The only hiccup was a complaint from the Alaska delegation after they announced a vote of 12 for Cruz, 11 for Trump and 5 for Rubio but they were recorded as 28 for Trump. In this at times undisciplined enterprise, though, who knew?

Wednesday's theme is "Make America First Again". Two passages were almost identical to a 2008 Democratic convention address by Mrs. Obama.

Trump's campaign chief, Paul Manafort, managed only to keep the controversy alive by insisting there was no evidence of plagiarism, an untenable assertion given the similarities. In contrast, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said he "probably" would have fired his own speechwriters under similar circumstances. (Donald Jr. was also one of the few to mention immigration, the issue that did more than any other to win the nomination for his father, and even he didn't talk about it for long.) Mitt Romney ran on his business record in 2012, and built a lot of his campaign on the idea that the US needs a businessman for President, and it didn't work.
